English (K)

The following is my Kindergarten English and Language Arts curriculum. As time goes on I will continue to add projects that correspond with these units. You can also find projects on my pinterest boards.

Poetry Unit – Reciting, recognizing rhyming words, generating rhyming words in a rhyming pattern

Vocabulary Unit – Using descriptive words

  • I am as…. Using descriptive words from Virtual Book Club for Kids
  • Have your child close their eyes and give them an item (or put an item in a paper bag) to describe based on how the item feels. If it is a food item have them describe how it tastes or smells.
  • Create lists of words that can replace commonly used words; happy, sad, good, bad, etc.

Learning to Write – Tracing, writing the alphabet, printing first name, and starting to write spelling words phonetically

Comprehension Unit – Predicting the outcome of stories by using pictures, retelling stories. Doing activities with books that you read.

  • Children’s Book Activities from Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas
  • Read your child half of a story then have them draw pictures to predict what will happen next.

Reading Unit – Introduction to sight words

** When making my kindergarten curriculum I started with Virginia’s Standards of Learning. While I am not a fan of the SOL tests I do not have a problem with the information that is covered. I felt using the information covered in the SOLs as a baseline for my curriculum would ensure my children were learning the same subject matter as their peers. I wanted to go beyond that though. I built up my curriculum by adding information from other online curriculums, and my sons interests. **
